A Ilnranr For St , IJornnril's Hospital
Accident to a Thonclitlcaa
Clmrlty In
Noln nil's Victim
The cnso ot Klttlo Edwards , the woman
who was shot by the sulcldo , John Noland ,
several days ago , is attracting considerable
attention among the modlcal men of the city.
When first visited by n physician , the latter
declared that she could not live twelve hours.
However , she did llvo twelve hours , and has
been constantly Improving over since. That
thin should bo so seems very remarkable ,
considering tbo course taken by the bullet ,
which was of thirty-two cnlibro.
It entered the skull nbout half an Inch
above the loft eye , passed through the brain ,
nnd the physician Is of tbo opinion that ,
after striking the rear wall of the skull , the
ball plmiccd downward , and Is now located
about two inches to the rcnr of the base of
the left car. The patient has lost fully four
ounces of bruin fiber and several small
pieces of ttio skull. The woman has recov
ered consciousness , and is able to converse
with her attendants ami mnko known her
wants. If she recovers , It will bo little loss
than n mlrnclo , yet her physician says that
slid luis n fair show of recovery. It. Is a case
yery rarely mot with , nnd will go on record
as ono of the remarkable affairs that are
found in the annals of surgery.

inp nt the corner of Twenty-third street and
Avcnuo D , stopped to the front platform ,

tending to got oft at the crossing. Ho closed
the gnto after him , but It pulled through ,
throwing him from the step. Ho fell back

Ho was partially stunned , and assisted on
board again and brought up town to the of
fice of Dr. Bellinger , who dressed the wound.
Thcro was n terrible s'calp wound , the cut
bolng fully tlirco inches in length. The skull
was not fractured. The unfortunnto man
sustained several painful bruises about the
back , but will entirely recover In u short
1 1 mo. No blnmo for the accident can attach ,
to the company , as the forward platform is
reserved for tbo inotorman , and is not for
the use of passengers.
Civil and Uncivil.
In tbo district court yesterday the case of

The case was not completed when court ad
During the afternoon three prisoners con
fined In the county Jail were ordered ro-
loascd. Charles Ummuin , who has boon in
carcerated for the past six months for com
plicity lu the larceny of a , watch chain from
Robinson Bros. , was ono of tboso released.
His pals were sent across the state.
Charles Perry , the ether ono released , was
indicted for forging a chock on D. F. Eichcr.
Ho Is a colored man , and was steward at the
rooms of the Council Blufis club at the time
of his arrest.
Tha third was E. A. Raymond , who was
indicted for adultery with a woman who is
now living with her husband in Omaha. The
husband was the complainant anil prosecut
ing witness , but bo now refuses to return to
Iowa and testify against Kaymond. This
took all the wind out of the sails of the pros
ecution , and nothing remained but to dis
charge the prisoner.

To the Editor of TUB BEG : I can not quite
understand that article In your paper nbout
mo. All I can make out of it Is that some
respectable German citizens of Council Bluffs
want to find out If I spent any of the dimes
and quarters they contributed toward Gor-
Icke's ' funeral for boor. Please toll thorn
that I hadVlonty of money of my own to refresh -
fresh myself on that occasion , but If any of
thorn begrudge the dime or quarter they can
como to mo nnd rccclvo that big sum back
any time during my life. Once more I thank
all contributors and remain , Yours Sincerely ,
The Now Motor Lino.
A petition to the city council bus bcon pre

line , asking thnt certain streets in this city

and tliu operation of their lino. The princi
pal routn will bo from the end of the Union

avenue , thcnco toward tbo Deaf and Dumb

Several other streets nro asked for , among
them being Eighth strcot , from the north to
south city limits , but this is strongly objected
to by property owners. The route above
stated Is the key to the whole situation , bow-
over , as from the terminus on South avenue
the Chnutauqua assembly grounds nro easily
accessibleby v/uy of the Mosiiulto creek val

Thus the line would reach those desired
suburbs , ns well as covering the ontlro south

would roach to the north. The parties inter
ested talk freely regarding the line on this
sldo , but are silent whan the brldgo is men

A reporter for the Cincinnati En-
qulror recently visited the dissecting
room of tno woman's medical college
there thus describes the sights there :
On the common wooden table lay n
It was that of n woman past middle
Around It stood seven women , whoso
yonrs ranged from eighteen to forty-
live.They wore long aprons thnt came
from their noclcs to their heels , their
bonnets were off nnd they were eagerly
working over the remains with their
heads oont close nnd their nlmblo
lingers moving back nnd fro , ns if they
wore plckintr out nuggets of gold. .
Ono of the Indies , short nnd plump ,
with her hair done up pompadour , and
n nluIn gold ring on her loft hand and n
seal amethyst on her right little linger ,
wns nt the head of the table , nnd as she
stood over the head of the corpsowhoso
ghastly features almost touched her
lips , she pcorod as If looking into the
very Intricacies of the head and faco.
In their loft hands
THE -VVOMKN AM , HAD nxcnnfl
or forceps , and with those they deftly
grabbed the llcsh , and with n scalpel In
the right hand they slit little cuts off
from the skin. Then muscles were
grabbed by the forceps that they hold ,
and , lifting thorn up , all the material
was cut from them until Iho muscles
stood out like n long string.
The women were dissoctlng.
The scene wns in the garret of the
Female Medical college , on Qoorgo
A small cannon stove nt the foot of
the body wanned up the room sulll-
oiontly , and when the blnzo wont down
bits of material thrown in flashed up
with n siz/.lo and n glow.
Ono of the pung ladies had just como
from some town in Kentucky. She hold
her forceps at arm's length nnd stood
npart and off from the stiff ns though
there was something corrupting about
it. She hnd n long nose nnd bright ,
black eyes , and snnppcd out with vigor ,
"Oh , mercy , I shall
"Oh , yes , you will , " said the amiable
nnd scholarly demonstrator. "Don't
be nfraid ; get right up to the material.
There , do you know whnt that muscle
"No , T do not. "
"It's the Sartorius. It enables the
tailor to sit cross logged , " nnd grabbing
the muscle that runs from the hip down
the inside of the thigh to the knee-cap
she pulled it , and up came the foot nnd
nnklo of the corpse close by the Ken
tucky girl's hond.
The lady was working on n corpse
all by herself. Its sides had been tak ° n
out , and about all there was loft thnt
hnd not boon chopped up or hacked to
pieces was the loft kneoi nnklo nnd
foot. This looked white , but shriveled.
The demonstrator , Dr. Lewis , were
anapron like the ludios , nnd hold the
scalpel and forceps like an expect. Ho
adu long
And sinew , every artery nnd nerve ,
and as ho selected them out of the dif-
horont parts of the body nnd asked
"What is this'r" "What is it functions11"
' it soon became evident that dissection
was no child's play , and that ono of the
first requisites was a prodigious mem
There was no odor in the dissecting
room no putridismoll of dead nnd de
caying matter. The corpses had been
carefully embalmed , so that there was
not even the faintest aroma that could
otTcnd. '
A noticeable feature of the dissecting
room was that the women nil appeared
In earnest. There were no jokes , and
each scorned bent on learning , no mat
ter how disagreeable the work. Several
of them had been nurses and were used
to the sick , the dead and the dying , and
some of thorn had the appearance of
women who would scream at a mouse ergo
go into hysterias at a ghost.
The demonstrator at last took a posi
tion nt the head of the body , and , call
ing the attention of nil , said : "And
this is for all of you , " proceeded to make
ti couple of

laryngotomy nnd tracheotomy. The
ono wns performed above Adam's apple ,
the other bolov. Ho soon found the
artery that had to bo tied , but some
thing took to bleeding , and hence the
danger , then picked out each of the
muscles and hung a jaw-breaking Latin
name on to each that made the young
ladles say "OhJ dear , " and ono of thorn
got her anatomy , and , shutting her
eyes , repeated it over and over ngain so
ns to tack it fast on the tablets of her
The demonstrator minutely described
the operation on the Emperor Fred
erick's throat , and explained what Sir
Morroll Mackenzie aid , at which the
medical world stood nghnst. The
wns something that astounded the ro
portor. Neither of them had the dried-
up , mummified appearance so common
to material that is ordinarily found in
the dissecting room. The features of
each were preserved so that identifica
tion could have boon a matter of no dif
ficulty. Though the whiteness has a
dead sort of paleness devoid of that of
the living , beneath the flesh of which
courses the warm arterial blood , giving
the flush of health nnd glow of vitality.
Ono of the lady students cumo in late ,
nnd she neither took oil her hat nor put
on an apron , but , removing her gloves ,
took up a pair of forceps and scalpel and
preceded at once to scraping the flesh
oil ono of the logs without any hem
ming or hawing. Perhaps she had just
como from a late breakfast. At any rate ,
the work seemed to have no more effect
on her than making a bed or washing a
pan."Doctresses do well , " said the doan ,
Dr. Rood , as ho passed rapidly through
the room. "Why , n young lady who
graduated two years ago , and who was a
fine anatomist , settled out in Washing
ton territory , and now she writes ano
"Yes , but this'handling of dead
bodies there's something ghastly anout
it , especially for u womanV"
"No , there is not not a bit of it.
That is all mawkish sentiment. There
is no reason why a woman should not
rrmlco as good a surgeon as a miui , with
perseverance and intelligence , Why ,
the orriporor of Hayti was operated upon
by n woman surgeon n few months ago
in Paris. And the time is fast approach
ing when to ladles will bo delegated
certain delicate surgical operations ,
which possibly they may bo fitted to
dexterously perform. "
How a Railroad Man Saw the Ghost
, of A , A. Tnlinuie.
"No , I wouldn't ride in that car If the
inducements were a free ride from San
Francisco to Now York. It is an un-
luoky vohlclo. "
So spoke Colonel J. H. Woodward of
the Wabash road , according to the Sun
Francisco Examiner. IIs attention
had just bcon called to n dispatch in
ono of the morning papers stating that
O. M. Hays , general manager pf the
W abash road , had u few days ago placed
kis private car at the disposal of the
family of Russell Harrison , son of the
president , to convoy thorn from Omaha
to Indianapolis , "tfio generous offer
was nccoptcd , nnd Iho trip proved thor
oughly onjoyablo. 'Tho dispatch had
evoked reminiscences in the mind of
the colonel. "Hays ! car , " Bald ho , "Is
never mentioned wmong cortnln mon
without recalling queer memories. I
am one of those men' .
"Tho car is an olegnnt piece of work
manship and was built expressly for A.
A. Tnlmngo nl the time thnt ho wns
general manager of Gould's Missouri
Pacific system. Later on , when ho became -
came general manager of the Wabash
system under Its receiver , ho still re
tained the car nnd traveled hundreds
of miles in it.
"In the summer of 1877 ho wns tnlton
ill , nnd ono day started northward from
St. Louis in this car , bound for n short
vacation in Michigan. The train had
hardly reached Peru , Ind. , when ho
suddenly died , Hays then became his
successor and the car wns assigned to
his use.
In Mnrch ot last your I wns In St.
Louis , nnd wns Invited by Hays to
travel to Chicago with him in the car ,
und Chnndlor , the gonornl passenger
agent of the road was in the party. Wo
pulled out of St. Louis in good style
about 1U p. m. , and were soon humming
merrily along. Probably an hour after
starting Chandler retired , nnd Hays
pointed to the bedroom nt ono end of
the cnr nnd told mo it was nt my ser
vice. I wns tired nnd prepared to tnko
n good sleep. I locked the door of the
room nnd turned out ono of the two sus
pended lamp lights. I foil asleep al
most instantly.
' 'How long I had bcon asleep I cnn-
no't toll , but I was nwakonod by someone
ono pressing hard upon my nrm. My
first thought wns that nf thief had got
Into the car , nnd entered my room. It
wns ns dark ns a closet , nnd I distinctly
remember that I had not turn eel out the
lamp. I foil convinced that a thief was
in my room.
"These thoughts passed through my
mind quick as n flash , nnd yet all this
time I felt the mysterious pressure on
my arm. I was frightened , hut did not
utter a word , except when first being
disturbed , to ask , 'Who's thcro'i" nor
had I jumped out of bed. My head was
propped up Und I wns lying on my loft
side. The pressure of the intruder's
hand wnsnn my loft shoulder.
"My feelings may bo imagined. It
seemed that some ono had administered
chloroform to mo , and as Its influence
was dying nwny I was making n dospor-
nto ollort to throw off the spell of the
"Suddenly I saw standing before mo ,
by the side of the bed , the figure of a
man. I thought it must bo nil n dream ,
and with my right hand rubbed my eyes
vigorously. Just then the figure said :
'So it is you , colonel , that I moot hero. '
Then I recognized the voice and figure
of Talmnge.
"I hnd known Him well when alivo.
Ho was my brothcr-ln-lawnnd for .years
wo had maintained relations of friend
ship. I cannot givo'you ' an idea of what
my thoughts were' a't thnt moment , I
did not say n word. . I could not speak.
Tt was not on account of fright. Some
thing seemed to .havo taken away my
will power. I toll like ono entranced.
"Tho figure that stood before mo wns
that of Talmngo as * I had scon him a
hundred times in life. I wanted to
utter a kindly greeting , but was para
lyzed. Ho scomtid as if trying to
stretch out ono of 'his ' hands for mo to
grasp , but when I tried to reach out my ,
right hand 1 foil flat on my back in the
bed , perfectly helpless and totally unable -
able to raise my head again.
" 'Colonel , it wagon that bed that I
died , and had to lo'avo all my people and
friends. ' With" thq36'words his figurts
disappeared. Silently ns it had como
into the room' it departed , and all I
could hear was the clatter of the car
"I lay awake until the first rays of
dawn , and then got up. I found myself
as week as a babe. I looked at the door
and found it locked as tightly ns when I
retired on the preceding night. Both
lamps were out , and' ' the only explana
tion I have ns to why the light went out
is thnt it wns turned down so low that it
was put out by the jolting of-the car.
"You may imagine I did not feel par
ticularly refreshed that morning. My
mind was troubled , and ray face showed
iU The hour was early and no ono was.
up except the colored porter. Ho had
been with the car two years or more
with Mr. Talmage. Ho noticed 4ho
troubled look in mjrfaco , and expressed
surprise at my getting up so early. "
"No , I did not sleep well last night ,
Jim , ' I said by way of reply to him.
"Thon with a nervous twitch of the
mouth nnd in n frightened whisper , ho
asked , 'Did you see Mnssa Talmugo's
spirit last night , kurnelV'
" 'Did Mr. Talmago die In that room ,
Jim ? ' I asked.
" 'Yes , kurnol' and free or four pee

A Mtisonlnr Christian.
What a brnvo , muscular looking
Christian Rov. Robert Collyor is , says
the Now York Star. I enw him lately
coming out of his Church of the Mes
siah , nnd ho looked like n sturdy yco-
mnn of n past generation. Ho is a
marked contrast to many of his pulpit
brothorn. There is very little of the
regulation evangelist style nbout his
dross or figuro. Ho is n modest man too ,
in his ways nnd lifo. Ho lives in n
small brick house on East Thirty-ninth
street , and , unlike many of his fash-
ionnblo brethren , no butler guards him
from intrusion. Ho requires no card or
password from the strnngor who calls to
see htm. His house is open alike to the
poor nnd rich to the poorest , indeed ,
in preference to any ono olso. Ho has
n good salary , ho lives moderately , but
ho never saves a cent. If you would
know why , watch his doorstops for n
single day and note the mon and women
to whoso appeals the great hearted
preacher listens and 'responds. Then
you will not wonder that ho has no bank
account on this earth" .
